as to why we really should have some gun registration and gun laws in this country. so the mood of the country right now is such that if we don't move on this now, i don't know what we're going get done. and this is something that president obama really seems to want to usher? >> the catalyst of the conversation, though, seems to be based on what we witness as a country in newtown. play your michael bloomberg was on our air earlier and talking about the fact that we can use that as an example. we have a bigger problem in this country. gentlemen, take a listen. >> as horrific as sandy hook has been and all of the other seechliseechl i seemingly episodes of mass violence, we experience that carnage or worse every single day across our country because every day of the year an average of 33 americans are murdered with guns. here's another way to think about what that means. one week from today president obama will take the oath of office for his second term. and unless we take action, during those four years some 48,000 americans will be killed with guns. >> mayor michael bloomberg

angry at someone that is so well respected in the country and is trying to shepherd your party into a new era. president obama won with a new majority. he won among women, asians, blacks, latinos, young people. what colin powell is trying to shepherd the republican party and say you can't dress it up. you can't put four or five people in front of the camera and call yourself diverse. not only does the republican party have a problem with diversity, they also have an authenticity problem. people would scratch their head and say are you being sincere? and colin powell is trying to lead that way. and he's not the only one within the republican party. look at jeb bush doing the same thing safing you need to change. and there's plenty of women that are elected to congress right now that are basically republican women trying to do the same thing. you have to change and modernize with the reflection of the american public. >> richard, i looked all day for a leading moderate republican to come out and defend general powell. why are they so quiet? >> i think there's a lot of fear in the
exactly in half. the reality is that the half of the country that is open devoting for obama, in fact, voted for him in november still is a strongly pro gun control constituency and the large extent democrats have been paralyze odd this issue by the fear of losing voters they've already lost. mostly blue collar white men, more rural voters. i think the key for the president is going to be to build a coalition that includes not only democrats, but those blue state republicans. that's the big difference between the politics of gun control and congress from the 199 0z until today. in the 1990s those blue state republicans felt pressure to support it. >> you could go through congress, or the president could go to issue an executive order. talk to me first about an executive order. obviously it would have to be around laws that already exist. what are his options potentially on the table? >> pretty limited. i think on executive order, they are going to have elements of executive action in the package that are coming out with this week, but they will acknowledge from the white house themsel
of them having to do with iraq, but some having to do with the obama administration's desire to get out of iraq today, we left that country. the result is kind of an increasing instability. if we had stayed, would it be unstable? it is impossible to say. i suspect we would have less instability. host: writing about this nomination, the headline -- there is the team of rivals and the movie "lincoln." moving from a team of rivals to a band of brothers. guest: the state of the union address will be on abraham lincoln's birthday. we have lots of ways to further reinforce this metaphor. host: the oscars are pending. guest: that is true. when you think of joe biden, chuck hagel, barack obama, john kerry, you four guys that worked in that committee. i think they will find opportunities. they did work together. i remember david petraeus, when he was testifying about afghanistan, was asked by richard luger about strategy and where afghanistan fit inside the broader objectives. he said, that is not my job. my job is to achieve success and achieve our objective inside afghanistan. i cannot tell yo
the country. every weekday from 3:00 to 6:00. we will see you next week. >>ood evening. i m. lowrie rothman. america's longest war is closer to an end. obama set in motion a reversal of policy to negotiate with terrorists. you heard correctly that includes talking to a group that is accused of aiding international terrorist. that was at a joint news conference today with a news conference with karzai. both are putting there support for the support role this spring and reconciliation talks with the television. >> ultimately security gains should be matched with political progress of real reconciliation progress with the afghan government and television. president karzai updated me on the road map to peace and we agreed the process we should open the television office to facilitate talks. >> but the readiness of the army is closed but they're showing that they're able to operate without the assistance of the u.s. and violence is higher than the surge from two years ago. also insider tax last year there were 45 attacks resulting in 62 deaths among the coalition forces compared to 65 the previo
and the family. obama's second inaugural address coming up soon would be a good time for him to rely on the country that the government is dependent on the people, not the other way around. we also need more clarity and discussion from all of the leaders about the importance of family despite the widespread acceptance that children do better with two-parent married households despite what we know about the instability in financial hardships caused by single parents trying to raise children on their own and despite statistics about the worst educational attainment, greater criminal justice and a great welfare usage among the single parent families, despite all of that our leaders, our universities, our media and religious institutions and the leaders of the groups where the problem of single parenthood is the most severe both of the african-american and hispanic community refused to take this issue on the aggressively or deal with in any meaningful way. this problem is particularly glaring in the reporting of most of our media, which to it sometimes credit devotes great effort in chro
. >> there are so many things that happen every week in northern california, but all over the country, we realize that this week it is the two-year anniversary of the shooting of congresswoman gabrielle giffords and in the wake of mass shootings in connecticut and in colorado, the obama administration is pushing for new gun safety laws. right here in california, several lawmakers have already introduced bills regulating firearms and ammunition sales. one of the latest to do so, assembly member nancy skinner of berkeley who sat down with me earlier to explain how her new bill would help curb gun violence. assembly member nancy skinner. thank you so much for joining us. >> glad to be here. >> just this week near bakersfield, california, taft high school, another shooting. what could your bill ab48 have done in that situation? >> well, the young man who did the shooting had a shotgun that he had to pump, so that's why few people were killed in that incident or shot. if he had used one of these conversion kits and turned his gun into something that could shoot lots of weapons fast, he would have kill
are on the verge of exploding. i believe obama is getting a pass on the responsibility. paul ryan's plan, if it had been pushed through, how would it have affected the financial condition of this country? thank you. guest: thank you. chairman paul ryan, the chairman of the house budget committee, has had budget the last seniors. if they had been implemented fully, what would happen is we would not have a balanced budgets. that's a dream that those of us who wanted 25 years ago, have admitted cannot be done in a short time. what it would have done would be to reduce the increase of our debt and it would have made our debt rise by a smaller margin than the increase in our gross domestic product. that's all we want. we want to stabilize this debt somewhere around 60% of gdp. that's a number that the international monetary fund and others have said is sustainable level. right now the $16.40 trillion is at 102% of gdp in it we have a tough time ahead of us. the paul ryan bill, had it become law, and done something useful. but you will notice that it did not. the american people had this debate during th
this problem. gerri: more about embarrassing republicans or more about getting changing control in this country? >> i think it's probably both. while they would very much like to embarrass republicans, democrats would always lector and bearish republicans, especially the obama democrats, but in this case in this circumstance that think this is about a way to achieve maximal controlled on firearms, probably expand background checks, perhaps expand into private sales between individuals, do whatever they can to restrict, regulate the sale and use of guns that executive power allow. gerri: here is what the president had to say in his press conference about what he would like to see in that package. >> what you can count on is that the things that i have said in the past, the belief that we have tough starter background cat -- stronger background checks, can do a much stronger job in terms of keeping these magazine clips with high capacity out of the hands of folks should not have them, assault weapons ban that is meaningful, those are things that continue to believe make sense. gerri: what is inte
reasonable that the country will agree with as a condition for raising the debt. not for eliminating deficit. it could be balanced budget amendment. don't stop the checks. they are asking obama instead of 40 cents off the dollar but cut a cent or two off the borrowing and we'll raise the debt ceiling. he is saying if you do anything, you are going to stick to default. i would channel him on that. >> the future of gun control from this administration ahead of recommendations out tomorrow by the vice president. that's next. my wife takes centrum silver. i've been on the fence about it. then i read an article about a study that looked at the long term health benefits of taking multivitamins. they used centrum silver for the study... so i guess my wife was right. [ male announcer ] centrum. always your most complete. are you flo? yes. is this the thing you gave my husband? well, yeah, yes. the "name your price" tool. you tell us the price you want to pay, and we give you a range of options to choose from. careful, though -- that kind of power can go to your head. that explains a lot. yo,
of these people. remember, it was voters in pennsylvania that president obama said was clinging to their guns and religion. >> now, the republican party in what's going on an uneasy alliance for them in coal country, is the fact these rank and file guys, they're pro labor union. that's why the club for growth and some of these more conservative groups don't like her because she's pro union and trying to be pro coal. >> and there was the big sort of first test we're going to see of republicans in washington, d.c., whether or not they can control their own primaries or wield the sort of influence they've lost over the past couple of years. one of the best candidates, one of the best recruits that a republican party could bring in terms of trying to win a race in november, but this a low turnout in west virginia, maybe somebody runs to her right and we get a sharon engel, christine o'donnell situation. >> and we've seen still, democratic party still has some strength left in a place like kentucky and west virginia and it's usually based in this, the divide over business, isn't it? >> and the big
? , >> guest: is a countries whose future is uncertain, and certainly it could become -- and already is a bit off the path of democracy in my assessment, but the battle really isn't lost. the american government -- the obama administration is trying to do what it can to stabilize things, but it lost a lot of influence with the departure of american forces. one thing that the american forces did get in the united states is more clout inside of iraq. >> host: talk about the release of a man accused of killing american soldiers. this issue that you write about in your book, "the endgame," but also some news that came out in november about the release of ali. >> guest: there's been a number of events that i think have worked against the american interest in iraq. that duke is one of them. she is an iraqi come he is a lebanese who was sent into iraq at the behest of the american courts because hezbollah is supported by iran. for the purposes of training of the shiite militia who were fighting the american troops, and he was captured along with a number of the shiite militia leaders in the rate con
